Communication

Ages 4-8

ORDER: HARDCOVER
ORDER: PAPERBACK

COMMUNICATION IS TELLING AND LISTENING

Communication is how we share what we know and how we feel. It sounds simple. However it can be difficult to effectively communicate how we feel and express ourselves appropriately, even as adults.

"Some things are hard to say, But it's a relief when you say them...I'm too shy to say it...I don't like to hurt people's feelings...I can't find the words...I'm afraid to tell...Nobody would understand...I'm embarrassed...Maybe it will go away...He won't listen."

COMMUNICATION is illustrated in squares and strips in a an almost comic book fashion with very clear dialogue.

Highly recommended for classroom use as well as parenting.
